Adult Education

Life Long Learning

J&L Learning Services, in cooperation with the Winnipeg School Division, will offer an extensive slate of adult education courses in the fall. For more information, visit: www.lifelonglearning.wsd1.org​.

Adult EAL

The Winnipeg School Division operates an Adult EAL program that is funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to provide an opportunity, within a multicultural environment, for adult students to develop a facility in the English language and an understanding of Canadian Society.

Classes are available during the day at Sir William Osler School and 686 Portage Avenue, 2nd Floor and in the evening at Winnipeg Adult Education Centre.

Winnipeg Adult Education Centre website​

The Winnipeg Adult Education Centre provides an opportunity for adults to continue their high school education in an adult atmosphere.

The Centre offers a large variety of courses and options in all subject areas for students to complete their Grade 12. For those students not ready to enter at the Grade 12 level we offer preparatory courses at the Grade 9-11 levels to meet their needs.

English Language Development classes, leading to Grade 12 credit (English 40E), are provided at all levels. Entry-level students need to at least have completed EAL courses and require an assessment to determine placement. Successful completion of English 40E is suitable preparation for a student to take English 40S Comprehensive.

Numerous opportunities exist for computer experience in Business Education, English, Science and Mathematics subjects.

The Adult Literacy Program helps students attain functional literacy. This program provides development of basic skills in reading and mathematics for adults who are illiterate.

Students may take full, part-time, and/or combined programs depending on their individual needs and circumstances. Day classes are offered between 8:45 a.m. and 3:40 p.m. from Monday through Friday. The school has vending machines in the student lounge.

Applicants who are 19 years of age or older and have been out of school for at least 6 months are eligible for admission.
